Lenin Monument, Hanoi

Lenin Monument, Hanoi

The Lenin Monument or Lenin Statue is a stone sculpture of the Bolshevik Russian revolutionary, Vladimir Ilyich Ulyanov, popularly known as Lenin. The statue is located on a playground in Duong Dien Bien Phu Street in Hanoi called Lenin Park.

The Lenin statue was erected in Thong Nhat Park in 1980 to commemorate the 110th anniversary of Lenin. It was a gift from the USSR to the Vietnamese people. The statue was later placed at the location that was renamed Lenin Park. It now faces Hanoi’s Military History Museum.

The present Lenin Park is a playground frequented by locals. In the morning synchronized Tai Chi exercises are performed here. Aerobics classes are held in the mornings for people of all ages. In the evening the park becomes crowded because it is a popular playground for children. Badminton players and soccer teams also practice here.

The Lenin statue stands in the triangular Lenin Park amidst palm trees. It is one of the few statues of Lenin left in the world and is a reminder of the impact the USSR had in its heyday on world politics including that of Vietnam and the support it provided for revolutionary movements all over the world.
